State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, will create hand-crafted Valentines for locally based units of the armed forces today.

For his fifth consecutive year in a row, Hill plans to join a group of South San Francisco seniors to create nearly 400 heartfelt Valentine cards, which will be sent with love to recently deployed California Air National Guardsmen from the 129th Rescue Wing, based at Moffett Federal Airfield.

About 165 airmen from the rescue wing were deployed Jan. 25 in support of missions in Afghanistan and the Horn of Africa.

"I look forward to joining the South City seniors in their Valentine crafts each year," said Hill, who began the project as an assemblymember in 2009, during his first term of the California Legislature.

This year's project will blend pink and red construction paper, doilies and hearts.

"(The seniors') handcrafted cards with messages of pride, gratitude and encouragement will make this coming Valentine's Day extra special for those deployed with the 129th Rescue Wing," Hill said.

The event begins at 2 p.m. Friday on the third floor of the Magnolia Center, 601 Grand Ave., South San Francisco.
